Toyota recently showcased a TRD version of the Toyota 86 at the Paris Motor Show. Toyota added a slew of TRD accessories on it which consists of items such as rear diffusers, larger sports wheels, adjustable suspension system and etc. Looks like owners or future buyers of the Toyota 86 will be spoilt for choices.

But what about the owners or future buyers of the Subaru BRZ? Are they going to be stuck with the stock look or wait for aftermarket parts from third party manufacturers? Actually, they do not have to wait long because Subaru has come up with a concept for the BRZ.

 

Known as the Subaru BRZ XT Line Concept, the Japanese automaker has given the already good-looking BRZ a more custom look. Rumour has it that the BRZ XT Line Concept could introduce a line of accessories or parts for the BRZ and also it could be the beginning of a forced-induced version of the car.

The designation XT may sound familiar to some and that is because Subaru has used it before to name a certain model. The Subaru XT (known as the Subaru Alcyone in its home market) was a two door sports car that was available during the mid 1980s and up to the early 1990s. And the XT tag was also used on the Subaru Forester (second generation onwards) to denote the turbocharged versions.

Details of the concept car was not given out but lets use the images as a guide to see what Subaru has added or changed. Firstly, the most obvious additions to the car are the carbon fibre parts (or just a carbon fibre wrap) of the side mirror, roof panel and rear spoiler.

The blacked-out look extends to the eleven-spoke sports wheels. Bright red brake callipers (with a Subaru wording on it) are situated on all four corners of the car and they give the car some contrast in colour. XT Line badges are added to the fender vents, C-pillars, wheel caps and also on the left side of the front bumper.

Inside the concept, the seats are wrapped in leather and given the same bright red colour of the brake callipers. An XT logo is stitched on both front seats. Carbon fibre trimmings are added to the top part of the gauge cluster and on the door panels as well.

As mentioned above, Subaru did not say much about the BRZ XT Line Concept. Hopefully, more details of it will be released later in the future. While we may crave for a turbocharged BRZ, we probably have to wait a little longer for one. In the meantime, we can only enjoy these images.

    Owner unwilling to pay after workshop rendered service

    A post about a customer who refused to pay after a battery replacement workshop rendered its services has gone viral online. Spotted on its own facebook page, FastFix Car Battery Replacement Service explained how the whole issue came about.  It wrote in its post that its client, Mr C, reached out to them saying that he needed help as his car could not start. After listening to the symptoms the car showed( car still cranks and aircon is not as strong as before), the workshop concluded that it needed a new battery. However, upon reaching Mr C, whose car was parked in the CBD and hence the need to pay for ERP charges, the guys from FastFix realised that it wasn't the battery that needed replacing.

    Concluding that there was nothing the guys from FastFix could do to help, Mr C was then asked to pay for the labour fee that had been pointed out before in their Whatsapp conversation. Unfortunately, Mr C disagreed and refused to pay the $50 that they had agreed on as nothing has been done to his Kia.  There was not much FastFix could do which probably prompted them to 'share their story' of the client on their facebook page.     Here are some of the notable comment in the post.
